EXPLORE LIFE ON EARTH with the most visually stunning timeline of evolution ever created, stretching back 4 billion years to the first signs of life in the seas. Then witness the emergence of multi-cellular life, the colonisation of the land, the reign of dinosaurs, mass extinctions, the migration of mammals and finally, the story of humanity from the first two-legged hominids to a world populated by more than 7 billion people today. The What on Earth? Wallbook Timeline of Nature also includes the Wallbook Chronicle that reports on more than 30 key moments from the timeline in the style of a newspaper. Other features include a crossword, letters to the editor, 50-question quiz and pocket magnifier. Perfect for 7-14 year olds but equally fascinating for all curious adults. Created in partnership with experts at the Natural History Museum of London.
